BARRERA-GUZMAN, Alfredo O.  and  GUILLEN-HERNANDEZ, Sergio. Intestinal helminths of Ciconiiform birds from the Chuburna saltmarsh, Yucatan, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2008, vol.79, n.2, pp.525-527. ISSN 2007-8706.

Ciconiiform birds from the Chuburná saltmarsh, Yucatán were collected and their intestines were examined for helminths. Seven taxa in total were found: 4 digeneans, 2 nematodes and 1 acanthocephalan. The digenean Cotylotretus grandis is registered for the first time for Yucatán. Additionally, there are new host records for the helminth species Euhaplorchis californiensis and Southwellina hispida, and also for the genus Ascocotyle.

Keywords : helminths; Ciconiiforms; intestine; Mexico; parasites; Yucatán.
